Spanish security forces, working with French police, arrested Abdelmalek Tanem, an Algerian national who also has French citizenship, in Almeria on April 30. He had recently returned from Syria, where he worked as a facilitator along the Turkish border, integrating European jihadists into the Al Nusrah Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham. Authorities arrested 21 people in six regions for lauding terrorist groups such as ETA and Islamist extremists, urging additional attacks, and mocking victims on social networking sites.
